    Hi Mitz,

    My fronts are due in 3000miles.

    I've been looking at upgrades for ages, really keen on the BMW Performance Kit, but struggling to find one other than at the dealers.

    Also, been looking at BBK's form K-Sport, which you might like?

    As always, their not cheap, roughly £800 for fronts, but I've struggled to find anything much cheaper than that.....

    Regards

    Gaz.

    I too have looking into this for my e92 mapped 320d. It seems that BMW performance do not have the rear option for the 320d e92 but do for the 320d e93. This is strange because they have exactly the same brake set up - same size std discs and pads! I was told I could order and fit the fronts no problem but if I ordered the fronts and rears the dealer wouldn't guarantee performance! It seems that BMW think the rears are adequate for the car and haven't tested the Performance version on the e92 but have on the e93! They have tested and approved the fronts on both.
    Following the upgrade the DTC and DSP programme needs an update.
    The rear set up looks very similar to the std but with the gold, slightly larger looking calipers. They do not say 'BMW Performance' on them, just BMW.
    I really would like the rears to match the fronts - you're right it's a nightmare trying to find a decent kit for fronts and rears.
